Monday morning the Moon in early Aquarius trines Venus and squares Saturn. It’s a nice change to have the mood in agreement with the aesthetic, and in earth signs, things are more cerebral and social than they’ve been for a bit. With that Saturn square, it’s natural that there are some irritations or brakes on. Slow and steady wins the race. The Aquarius Moon aids in lending the ability to detach a bit, to feel the bigger picture.
Venus quincunxes Neptune bringing a yearning for divine beauty, maybe a divine love. In this aspect, work is required to access the benefits, so put in some effort and there can be a dreamy payoff. It’s one thing to pine for something you want, it’s another to appreciate the mere ability to appreciate. Gratitude is a good angle here. Desiring and aspiring can be inspiring if you take the next step to either get what you want or to just appreciate it for what it is and where it is. For example, you might appreciate a painting in a museum, a painting you can never own. You can pine for something impossible, or you can go out and get something similar, or you can adjust your expectations and desires and appreciate its impact on your life.
By afternoon, the Moon quincunxes Jupiter and sextiles Uranus. The mood is ripe for thoughtful philosophizing that gives rise to innovation! If you’re in need of a jump start and a new emotional perspective, this is the time to open yourself up to that juicy mood. By nighttime, the Moon opposes Mercury in Leo and this can translate into some creative ideas and perspectives!
